Our check in time is 4pm with check out on the day of departure at 10am. If you need to arrange different times than these, please speak with us and we will try to accommodate you when we can.

Included in your room cost is a buffet continental breakfast daily for each guest from 7am-9am to get you all started for the adventures of the day. We ask that you please bring pre-prepared food just to keep the kitchen as user friendly as possible at busy meal times. For your enjoyment Arawa Lodge has a large lounge room, huge dining table and a fully equipped kitchen for our guests to use, with WIFI available for those who want it.

You book it you own it! We value our guests and always try to find solutions wherever possible due to uncontrollable circumstances however we are unable to control the weather, so we are not able to offer refunds due to weather conditions. We hope you understand. However in turn, we also stand by our secured bookings! We often have guests or potential guests enjoying some premium weather conditions and willing to pay ridiculous money to us for a bed, but we will turn them away to honour your booking!

A day at Arawa Lodge...

Arawa Lodge is famous for its deluxe continental breakfast including porridge, toast, cereals, fruit and yoghurts… a hearty start to everyones day, and one less job for the big people to have to organise for the hungry and excited little ones!!!

The dining room and kitchen is usually abuzz with everyone eager to hit the slopes – busy chatter of where to go and what runs to try – swapping of gear and lots of welcome advice being given amongst the groups. The more experienced snow trippers lending their knowledge of what to have and what to wear and what the potential day is looking like. There are endless discussions of previous trips and arrangements for meeting to try some runs together while having some time out with sharing of the children.

At the end of the day a meal is shared along with the enjoyment of meeting up together again and reviewing of how the day has gone. The wonder of community is definitely amongst everyone at Arawa Lodge – sharing, caring and helping each other out… and even rebooking the next trip to include the same familiar families and friends for their next Arawa Lodge experience.
